We were absolutely thrilled with Il Poilio. It was gorgeous and more than met our expectations. From the moment we stepped in, we felt right at home.

All the rooms were beautifully decorated and contained many lovely and interesting antiques. The plantings around the villa added a unique flavour to the place, as well as a wonderful fragrance. Also, it was very well equipped and contained everything that we needed.

The location was wonderful with fabulous views. It was magical to awake early on misty mornings with the birds singing and the sun coming up over Lago di Alviano. And sitting by the pool, looking at the flowers and scenery in the early afternoon quiet was so very pleasant and relaxing.

While we can’t say enough about Il Poilio, we also enjoyed the many hilltop towns in Umbria, the friendly people of Guardea and other towns and villages that we visited, and the many lovely walks/hikes in the surrounding countryside.

Thank you, and all the very best for the future,

Wendy and John Abbott
